Valkyrian Festival announces two more bands

Posted in News with tags , , , , , , , on 10th April 2014 by Nico Solheim-Davidson

Valkyrian Festival, which is in aid of Rape Crisis, has another three brilliant bands to this year’s bill. This year’s Valkyrian Festival already boasts a number of talented bands from both the UK and Europe, including Scottish black metal royalty Cnoc An Tursa, as well as Scarborough-based instrumental progressive death outfit Bharghest, as well as the more symphonic sounding Aonia, Azylya and Divided We Fall alongside the thrashtastic Reign of Fury and Dutch powerhouse Ex Libris, who boast Xandria’s new vocalist Dianne Van Giersbergen amongst their ranks.

Added to the final day of the festival are Spanish gothic metallers Tears Of Martyr. Having started as a doom metal band, the band’s sound soon developed in something darker featuring a lot of the key elements found in their music now. Tears Of Martyr have in the past opened for the likes of Epica, Draconian and Dark Tranquillity. Their next album, Tales, is set for release on 26th April 2014 through Massacre Records.

Announced alongside Tears Of Martyr are the festival’s special guests for this year Kent-based rabid thrash/death metallers Wretched Soul. Hailed as “a rising star in the underground thrash metal scene” by Musicosis, the quartet are a fine addition to the festival. The band comment:

Wretched Soul are very excited to be performing at Valkyrian Festival 2014 and to once again be sharing a festival stage with our good friends, Reign of Fury, alongside Bharghest and so many other great bands. Good cause, great crowd. It’s cool to be playing Bridlington again as well, which is one of the most metal towns we’ve played so far! See you there!

The full line-up for Valkyrian Festival 2014 is as follows:

Fri. 21st November
CNOC AN TURSA (Headliner) – Bharghest (Main Support) – Drekavac – Exile The Traitor – Crooked Lizard (Opener)

Further three bands to Valkyrian Festival 2013

Posted in News with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on 16th July 2013 by Nico Solheim-Davidson

Already bolstering a line-up that spans from viking metal to industrial and touching on other genres in between, Valkyrian Festival have announced a further three bands to this year’s bill. Confirmed for the Friday are Nottingham’s very own buccaneers of pirate metal Red Rum, who have also recently been confirmed for the Warhorns Festival. Red Rum will be joining Ravenage, Dead Man’s Conspiracy and Scotland’s djentlemen Storm of Embers on the first night of Valk-Fest.

Added to the more extreme metal stylings of Saturday are Leeds-based extreme metal tyrants Lammergeier who will be bringing their devilishly heavy sound which will no doubt go down well alongside the other other extreme metal acts on the bill such as Scottish corporate black metallers Maelstrom and fellow Yorkshire band Narcotic Death whose vocalist can apparently castrate a cat from a distance of 400 yards. And for industrial fans, Sheffield-based industrial duo The Gifted have been confirmed to play the final night of Valk-Fest 2013 with acts such as Spekulus, Powercake, Dakesis and Yorkshire’s most violently brutal band Severed Heaven.
